Our history
GeoDirectory was jointly established by An Post and Ordnance Survey Ireland to create and manage a database of every building in the Republic of Ireland.

With 5,600 delivery staff on the ground, An Post has intimate knowledge of every building in every village, town and city in the Republic of Ireland. Ordnance Survey has thoroughly mapped the Republic of Ireland over the past 150 years and has unmatched geographical expertise.

Together they have constructed the most powerful and sophisticated database of addresses and geographic locations.

A stand-alone database, GeoDirectory can also be synchronised with a range of GIS and mapping applications to help give many different businesses the crucial edge.
